    I've been trying to install this for the last few hours. When using the Terminal Emulator and typing command line, cat /sdcard/flash_image > /system/bin/flash_image, I keep getting " No such file or directory." I've gone through several times and reformatted my sim card and reinstalled everything like the write up says. Everytime I keep getting stuck on this command line. I know the flash file is installed on my sim card. I'm not too sure if I need to unzipp this flash file and reinstall it on my sim card. Any help would be appricated.

    Hi,
    Thanks very much for this tutorial. A few (good and bad) things I experienced:
    Good: I did the upgrade on a 2.2.2 LG uptimus V and after the first reboot I expected the ' Your first boot will get stuck in a bootloop on the bootsplash screen but dont worry'. This did not happened, everything was good.
    Bad: (just a small thing). I was amazed how well the battery last (again a good thing); however, after having the phone on for some time, the last row, just above the LG sign containing the 'phone bottom, the app bottom and the web bottom, disappeared. After a reboot it was back.

    Thanks again!

    Am I missing something or do these two lines essentially have you do the same thing twice:
    [HL]Xionia_CWMA_12518.6_VM_Recovery-signed (Unzip and place on root of sdcard, rename "recovery") --- [Custom Recovery] Xionia Clockwork (CWMA v1.2518.6)

    Flash_image (unzip and place on root of sdcard) --- [Custom Recovery] Xionia Clockwork (CWMA v1.2518.6)"[/HL]

    You seemingly link to the same file, just once you say to rename it "recovery" and in the next line you copy it with its original filename.

    EDIT: Looking, I now see you put the filename of the file you are supposed to get at the front of the two lines, rather than at the end and that is what confused me.

    Thanks for the awesome instructions on this. I do have a problem though. I followed everything in the instruction to the T and it went very smooth. Only problem is no matter how i try to activate with Virgin I can't. When i first boot the phone I do have an option to activate which does a call to Sprint?I can't get access to the numpad if i click on the home button to try to type anything in. Do I have to go back to stock in order to activate it first before loading CM7? If so what steps do I take. Appreciate it.
    Thanks,

    Thanks,
    Yes, you need stock to activate. If you made a backup of stock you can easily restore it via your recovery and then activate your phone.

    This procedure worked for me with an LG Optimus V I bought on cyber Monday. I am a noob at this, and there's a couple of things that might be helpful to clarify to those who are new with this procedure:

    1. Mounting the SD card is essentially plugging it into the USB port of an available computer you can work with. When you are able to transfer files from the computer to the card then it is mounted. To unmount from the computer after transferring fies, use the option in your OS to eject or safely remove and then unplug so it won't remount automatically.

    2. In this procedure you have to create the folder CM7 on your SD card when it is mounted to your computer.

    3. The root level of the SD card is the top level when its mounted to your computer, but it is located at /sdcard when accessing it in the phone.

    4. Watch out for spaces when typing in the terminal. Also, don't type the numbers at the beginning of each line.

    5. OI File Manager isn't the only file manager that you can use. I already had Astro so I used that. Also there are several different terminal emulators that will work. I used the most popular one.

    So those are just a couple of tips. Thanks for this great tutorial!

    Ok, everything went successfull. Thanks you so much everybody.

    Could someone please let us know how to update to the latest Backside-IHO ROM. This ROM is this forum top is the 11222011 ver. I believe there is an updated one that was released just a few days back in Dec. It has a lot of minor fixes and improvements.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    This link has the instruction:

    [ROM][WIP] BACKside ROM (CM7) + Green Machine Theme - Android Forums

    ...but I am not confident. Could someone help me from here.


    Thanks

    not sure if the op still visits this thread, but maybe someone else can answer. This how to didn't mention the need to find and install the windows drivers for optimus v. (it was mentioned as an optional step in this tutorial but recommended here

    I like this tutorial as it's the most up to date. He posted as 12/2011 and the one I linked was 11/2011 so I'm eager to try this one. So is there no longer a need for these drivers to be installed? If I don't install what types of issues could I have? Thanks

    Hi! I'm brand new here ... not tech savvy, but want to root anyway.

    So, um, first question: I don't find this "Xionia_CWMA_12518.6_VM_Recovery-signed" on the linked thread. Is it something I would extract from "xionia_cwma_12518.6.rar"?

    Which leads to question 2: how do you unzip a *rar file?? Windows doesn't know, and neither do I.

    Thank you so much for being here!

    (If this works, I might give Ubuntu another try on my laptop -- no telling where it will end!)

    No, sorry, that was lazy of me. I have discovered and downloaded 7-Zip. Yes, I do Google. Don't worry, I'm sure I'll have more silly questions.... This is nerve-wracking for a novice like me!

    No, sorry, I still don't find it.... Just "xionia_cwma_12518.6.img"

    7zip can rename things from .rar to .img just click rename... but that might not be the right thing to do.

    Winrar will do it on windows and androzip will do it on the phone

    Semi-Newbie...
    Question: I have an 'old' LG Optimus V Version 2.2.1, Can I still use this method to install this rom?
    I already rooted my phone using IHOrecovery. Is that fine to use this recover or do I need to change to Xionia recovery? In that case, how do I change to Xionia?
    Do I need to reenter the MSD key info on the phone after updating this rom, or is that info already there in the phone?
    Is there battery performance gain after the update?
    Currently using JuiceDefender, and very happy with its management capabilities.

    I will appreciate your feedback Thanks in advance!

    So... i'm stuck on step three and have a few questions.
    • Do we place every file listed in step one in the "CM7" folder (other than flash_image and recovery)?

    • Also, when renaming the Clockwork file do we preserve the ".img" extension?

    Thanks for your help!

    **EDIT: I figured it out (user error). The install went so smooth, I didnt even get a boot loop as mentioned in the tutorial!

    You put the .zip of the rom you want on your sdcard and then you'll just click on the zip in recovery.
